Curi’s Member Services team is constantly working to make sure that we’re offering you the best possible benefits to help your practice run efficiently and effectively. Here’s a snapshot of a few of them.
Member Dividend and Legacy Fund
In February, our board approved the 2021 allocations for our Member Dividend and Legacy Fund programs. We are paying out $2 million in dividends—annual cash payments to qualifying physicians—and we have distributed a cumulative $44.7 million since the program began in 2008. For The Legacy Fund—member savings accounts that grow tax-deferred and pay out upon designated events, including retirement—we’ve allocated $4 million, for a cumulative $137.6 million since 2009. For the first time this year, these benefits draw not only from Curi’s medical professional liability insurance business, but also from our activities across the enterprise—increasing the potential funds available to you.
Open Payments Reporting Tool
One of Curi’s most popular member benefits is a reporting tool that helps practices make sure all physician open payment data is accurately reported, as mandated by CMS. The tool, offered through our partnership with Venops, provides comprehensive and consolidated reporting on the federal Open Payments database, so you can be aware of all payments, confirm the report's accuracy, and address any potential conflicts of interest for your practice. The period for review, dispute, and collection of data runs through May 30 this year. To receive your Open Payments report, you will need to submit a form with your physicians' names.

If your practice hasn’t taken advantage yet of the cybersecurity audit we began offering last year as a member benefit, now is the time. Offered in partnership with One Source, one of the security vendors Curi uses to keep our own cyber infrastructure safe, this complimentary member benefit (valued at $500) involves three steps, all performed by One Source's team of highly skilled experts: discovery, consultation, and tracking.
